There are 11 high quality horses lining up for the 2024 Cheltenham Gold Cup and betting sites have odds at the ready for the Festival showpiece.

This could be a wide-open betting heat despite the presence of reigning champion Galopin Des Champs. 

In this article, we look at some of the bigger-priced runners in the Cheltenham odds who might be able to run into a place, with the bookies offering extra places for the blue riband encounter.

The Gold Cup (3.30) looks set to be a competitive renewal and there are any number of horses that can hit the frame including our two each-way plays Nassalam and Gentlemansgame

Cheltenham Gold Cup @ Cheltenham 3.30 - Gentlemansgame @ 22/1

Mouse Morris knows how to train a Gold Cup winner, which he pulled off back in 2006 with War Of Attrition.

Fast forward nearly two decades and there’s been money on horse racing betting sites for his Gentlemansgame, who hasn’t been seen at a track over the past few months.

Indeed, you need to go back to early November to find his last race, when the runner obliged with a victory at Wetherby. Maybe, just maybe, Mouse has been biding his time with the grey.

Cheltenham Gold Cup @ Cheltenham 3.30 - Nassalam @ 33/1

The latter selection, Nassalam, is a two-time winner this season and Gary Moore’s seven-year-old certainly looks capable of picking up the scraps.

Nassalam has been victorious at Chepstow on back-to-back occasions this term, with the latest success seeing the gelding oblige with a 34-length triumph over Iron Bridge and 17 other runners at the Welsh track.

He could well better his odds on betting apps and hit the frame in the big blow out race of the Festival.
